Knowing How to Bet
In gambling, trends dominate. I can’t explain it, but it happens.
In craps a shooter will pick up the dice and make six points in a row plus fourteen place numbers in between each come-out roll. When a shooter gets on a streak like this, even though it doesn’t happen often, heavy hitters make a bundle.
Blackjack can be frustrating, especially when you see a dealer go twenty-eight hands in a row without breaking. I sure wouldn’t wanna be at that table.
In baccarat it’s not uncommon for “bank” or “player” to show ten, eleven, twelve, or thirteen times in a row. Knowing how to bet these trends makes smart players successful players.
You’re Never “Due” To Win or Lose
Picking up today’s newspaper, I’ll read off the baseball teams that are on streaks. The Yanks have won seven straight, Toronto four straight, Anaheim four straight, San Franscico six straight, Pittsburgh three straight, and St Louis four straight, so I’m looking to stay with these hot teams.
On the down side, Minnesota has lost six in a row, Kansas City nine in a row, Miami seven in a row, and Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, and the Dodgers three in a row. I’m looking to go against these ice-cold teams tonight.
This is how bonusseeker.com works. It’s called following the trends. Naturally other factors come into play, but my first look is to catch streaks either for or against a team.
My friend Lee Tilstrange is a little strange when it comes to gambling. He is a “due-nut.” He believes everything is based on something being due to happen because it hasn’t happened previously.
We were playing blackjack one day and he won four hands in a row, betting $25 a hand. The dealer was ice cold. He then bet $5 and won, then $5 again and won and again $5 for another win.
I asked him why he wasn’t increasing his bets because the dealer was so frigid. “Hey, I’m due to lose” was his idiotic retort. He won six more hands at $5 a pop before he lost.
The next day the strange one and I were playing blackjack at same table and he lost four hands in a row at $20 a pop. I told he’d better leave. He smiled and bet $40 and lost. Then he $80 and lost, then $160 and lost again.
I told him he was nuts, the dealer was scorching. His words of wisdom? “Hey man, I’m no dope, I’m due to win.” He lost five more straight. You’re never “due” to win or lose at gambling.
Following the Dominant
If I was playing roulette and eight straight blacks came in, what do you think I’d next? I’d bet black and continue betting black until it lost, then I’d stop and wait for black to show and start chasing it. It’s called following the dominant! The dominant in this case is black because it’s showing.
Get it into that empty space between your ears how important trends are and look for them.
In gambling, trends dominate, or have I said that before!
